    They are part of the Timex group, but I believe the TX brand was discontinued. They advertised them as a combination of "German engineering and Italian Design". Realistically, they were made in a combination of China and the Philippines.

    The TX line has been replaced by Timex's Intelligent Quartz line.
    Wife: Don't you have enough watches?
    Me: Don't you have enough earrings?
    Wife: So, you're saying that watches are jewelry for Men?
    Me: That's exactly what I'm saying.
    Wife: Let's go shopping.

    And that's how I got my last watch...

    The Timex Group is a Dutch private holding company owned by an even larger Norwegian private holding company.

    In other words, they don't say any more than they have to, and they don't publish production numbers or locations.

    That said, there's no information that Timex manufactures in China. It would not be a stretch by any means.

    Nonetheless, TX watches routinely have been photographed with a "Philippines Movement" sticker on the back of the case -- where they are engraved with reference to their German engineering and Italian Styling.

    There once was a tx web site (2006) stating that "Our engineering team in Pforzheim, Germany has spent over five years developing a watch movement unique in both function and design made from parts manufactured in Europe."

    TIMEX was already present in Pforzheim in 1959:

    During WW II Laco produced pilot´s watches and (mainly) exploders for military purposes.

    After WW II, the factory has been destroyed on 23 February 1945, Hummel re-established the watch production in another factory (Metallwarenfabrik Wolff) which he owned (1949).
    From 1949 to 1958 the company has been known for manufacturing high quality mechanical watches and turned their expertise toward the production of electric/mechanical movements.

    In 1958 the prototype of the Laco-electric was presented at the Hannover Exhibition.

    Already in 1959 Ludwig Hummel sold his shares of Durowe and Lacher & Co. AG to the U.S. Time Corporation (later: Timex Corp.).

    In 1961 the first Timex Electric was launched.

    I just think it's cool to have an obsolete technology on my wrist that actually works.
